We had heard really good things about Zest from friends, but our experience wasn't a positive one at all. We went for dinner. The service was really slow, with about two servers taking orders for a relatively full restaurant. The ambiance was fine, as you could tell there had been an effort to fix up an old building. We were twice brought things that we didn't order by the waitresses. The black bean soup was very mediocre; full of hard shells and nothing special at all. The tandoori sandwich was clearly prepared long ahead of time and kept in a fridge, as the whole thing was freezing cold, yet it took for ever to have it served. The mussel dish was pretty good, with nice mussels. However, the Cesar Salad was extremely normal, yet expensive. The prices were over the top for what you got in most cases. The restaurant might be a lovely restaurant if you came at a different time on a different day, but this review is meant to review our experience at the restaurant, and our experience was mediocre. We wouldn't recommend this restaurant to others.
